The World According To Daniel Snyder: Love him, or (more likely) hate him - this story on the young billionaire NFL owner is interesting stuff: "Snyder goes through five newspapers a day and has three television monitors in his office, but says he's finished paying attention to media criticism. He believes he remains quite popular with the one constituency that he says really matters to him, the one he says shows him an overwhelming approval rating by faithfully renewing season tickets: "I represent the [expletive] fans, and the fans are good! The fans are right!"

Man, that guy is so frenetic and unfocused it made me tired to read the piece. He seems like a nice enough guy for a manic psychopath. He's right about the fans, though. As Jerry Jones showed, you can replace a legendary coach, owner, and general manager; turn over an entire staff; make a lot of embarrassing public gaffes, and people will love you if you're winning, no matter what the media says about you. If the Skins win a Super Bowl he could drive through downtown D.C. running over orphans and still be the most popular guy in town.

I hear most orphans are Dallas fans anyway. :)

I think to be a 'good' proactive owner it really helps to know a lot about the game. Jerry Jones and Daniel Snyder will never amount to a pimple on the ass of Al Davis.
